If You Ever Want to Bring a Piano to the Beach, Don’t!, Parsley
Author & Illustrator: Elise Parsley
Format: Hardcover, 40 pages
Publisher: Little Brown Books for Young Readers (2016)
The second book in the New York Times bestselling series that began with If You Ever Want to Bring an Alligator to School, Don't! is another uproarious cautionary tale about things that DON'T belong together!
If your mom says to get ready to play at the beach, she means with a boat, or a Frisbee, or a shovel. She is NOT talking about the piano. But Magnolia is a little girl with a big idea, determination and one very heavy upright piano that, she insists, she needs to take with her. What is the worst that can happen? In a riotous series of mishaps, Magnolia quickly learns that — not surprisingly — a piano does not mix well with sand, sun and seagulls!
